A systematic research was conducted for the isolation and identification of undesirable microorganisms in food products using molecular approach. The result revealed the presence of Yersinia aleksiciae and Pseudomonas fluorescens strains in Australian pasteurized milk and mixed salad respectively. Y. aleksiciae grouped as lacking virulence marker and is regarded non-pathogenic. P. fluorescens has been identified as a marker of spoilage of ready-to-eat vegetable salads. This study confirms the
